Default help,car revving by itself continuously

basically the car is revving from 1000-3000rpms continuously by itself over and over non stop. any clue to the problem? I reset the ecu but it still does it. do these cars have a TPS? could that be the problem?

Could be stuck throttle cable.

Check all the rubber connections on the intake manifold, one of my grommets popped out once and I had the same issue...air seeping in and reving by itself.

Check the cruise control cable, happened to a buddy of mine.

how could it be the throttle cable if it is reving? Wouldn't it be just straight up gas not revs?
